We leave the car park at Hadston Carrs and walk north along the beach road of Togston Links to Hauxley Links. Here we walk inland to reach the main entrance of the Hauxley Nature Reserve, where in the car park a Bronze Age burial cyst can be seen. The reserve is the result of the former Radcliffe open-cast mine lake that was bought in 1983 by the Northumberland Wildlife trust and now a home to many wild birds, butterflies, dragonflies and newts.

In winter, many migrant birds can be seen in the reserve that has many 'hides' for observation. Our walk takes us through the reserve, passing many of these hides before rejoining the links path back to the car park.

Started this walk today and unfortunately the reserve is closed until Spring 2017. We ended up going on a long divert but enjoyed the additional walk.
